If you haven’t seen or read the original press release of the Upgraded UHZ65, you can read it here.
We’re excited that we’ve had so much buzz around our Upgraded UHZ65 projector. However, we’ve had so many people contact us with questions, we’ve decided to create a post on the Frequently Asked Questions. These are also posted on product pages. So, without further ado, here are the questions and answers!
Two main reasons: cost and brightness. To add a custom-tuned cinema filter for this projector would add considerably cost and would place the projector outside of their target price point. The wide color gamut also reduces the overall brightness and Optoma chose to hit their 3,000 lumen output with the UHZ65.
If it is a lamp-based projector it is much more difficult (not realistic with most current filter designs) to get much beyond the 60% to 65% of REC2020. Other 4K laser projectors could achieve this, but so far, we’ve seen no other laser light source 4K projectors that have achieved this that we could find for less than $35,000.
Most likely yes, unless it is over 150” and you have lights on in the room. It also depends on the type of screen, the color mode selected, the color of the walls etc. If you want to watch the projector with some lights on then we would suggest keeping the screen to less than 120”. The best HDR experience will be in a dark theater-like environment with screens less than 140” and a screen gain of .8 to 1.3. A standard white matt screen is a gain of 1.0.
It is as accurate as is possible using a balance between technically correct and a reasonable amount of brightness. Each projector comes with an information sheet for optimizing the user’s preference for brightest or most accurate in each color mode for REC709, DCIP3, or REC2020.
Since the modified UHZ65 starts with 3,000 lumens we are able to achieve a very good balance of wide color and good brightness of up to a usable 2,400 lumens. The HDR mode with wide color (up to 80% of REC2020) will typically reach a brightness of 1,600 to 1,800 lumens. Lamp based projectors rarely reach past 65% of REC2020 with their best color mode and rarely reach past 1,200 lumens.
